That's not what a I asked. We have perl, and shell, and python, and
ruby scripts in git.git, they all use 'git foo' commands to get things
done. But to do that, forks are needed, many of them, constantly. The
proposal was to use libgit2 to avoid such forks. Well, show me a
*script* that does that and is worthy of inclusion to git.git, even if
it's to contrib.

I didn't ask for irrelevant 3rd parties, I asked for something worthy
of inclusion into git.git, a script that does something useful using

Duy Nguyen seems to think it's easy to do that. I'm waiting.
